The Boy from Shenga
by Daniel Sute
From outside its vast treeline, the forest of Akromeno was ever a distant, mysterious land. A boy called Hans once looked on from the hills, but when savages forced him from his home at age 10 he plunged headfirst into a rich society that he had no idea was there. Two years passed. A King roared in a red fit of rage, and the boy was given a task well beyond himself and his humble name.
